I think this is the ship "TRAIL" built 1943 7083 GT.430 ft. len. renamed "Loch Maddy" in 1951 then in 1960 renamed "Ocean Glory" and was scrapped in Japan in 1963. The bow design is different from the old "Loch Maddy" Just my thoughts

John,
You are possibly quite correct, looking at this ship she looks too new a design. I will post another one with her details that is more likely to be her.
